Online Training Course for Professionals

Our online training course is an essential tool for professionals in the field of learning disabilities. Despite low awareness of Fragile X Syndrome, the genetic condition is the most inherited cause of learning disability and affects 1 in 4000 males and 1 in 6000 females.


The training course aims to enable professionals to recognise the characteristics of Fragile X and identify ways to support those affected. The course includes real-life examples, case studies and involves interactive content.


Development of the training course was made possible through a partnership with Cornerstone and a grant from the Scottish Government Autism Development Fund. Thank you to Sandra Thoms for her input and expertise in developing this course.
